I'm just not that into it.

... a gay camp parody of the way fabulous heterosexual women court affection

I am not the person to review this movie. Perhaps you will enjoy a review from someone who disqualifies himself at the outset, doesn't much like most of the characters and is bored by their bubble-brained conversations.

For those who do not consider themselves to be among the Sex and the City faithful, this is a painful experience, perhaps the longest 148 minutes likely to be spent in a movie theater this year. Watching grass grow is more dramatically satisfying.

King fails to grasp what he once understood: When times are hard, you don't cry poverty. You step on the gas and give the audience a show.

It's just that there's been an altitude adjustment -- fewer stilettos, more flats. Ask what women want of a chick flick and one answer may be this -- a pleasant reunion with cherished friends. Ask what women deserve and the answer is better.

Shock hit me several times while watching the movie, and never in a good way.

The big screen isn't the ideal environment for the show.

Writer/director Michael Patrick King's first attempt to slip into full-length features from television wears heavily, resulting in as poor a fit as Carrie sporting coveralls and clogs.

The movie Sex and the City is a heady female fantasy -- I think. I tried to snuggle up to Sex and the City, but the attempt to snuggle for two hours and 20 minutes is in itself a fantasy. Like many typical men, I'm afraid I fell asleep.

Why get the band back together if you're not going to add some new songs to the greatest hits?

Sex, even when it's not great, is still good.

Sex and the City is not a painful experience for men (or even guys), just a predictable one...

An estrogen-fueled salute to the virtues of excess, if that's your Gucci bag.

I know this was made for the fans, but geez, was there no attempt to make it a good film?

I love Sarah Jessica Parker...Carrie and Mr. Big are definitely the best things about this film. But, at 2.5 hours long, there's just not enough good stuff to put this one over the top. I hate the sound of Kim Cattrall speaking, so that didn't help.

I went in rooting for SATC with everything I had, and it left me a bit disappointed.

The pacing barely ever breaks out of a light plod. And the writing is very, very average.

I will be up front about this. The movie was not made for me, so I found it pretty insignificant. But it's also quite painless.

Here is an unashamed celebration of materialist values, an orgy of labels, brands and product placements as sinful, by implication, as the behaviour of the characters.
